POTTER COUNTY, Penn. -- A church in Potter County, Pennsylvania will open its doors this weekend for the first time since a woman was shot during a Sunday service there.

The First United Presbyterian Church in Coudersport has been closed since the December 2nd murder. Police say Darlene Sitler, 53, the organist at the church, was shot by her ex-husband, Gregory Eldred, 52, about 20 minutes into the service.

Eldred is charged with first-degree murder.

The community will hold a candlelight vigil outside the church tonight, and the church will open this weekend.
